The Linfield College Athletic Training Education Program is accredited by the Commission on the Accreditation of Athletic Training Education Programs (CAATE).
Athletic trainers play a significant role in the management, prevention, recognition and rehabilitation of injured athletes. Under the supervision of a licensed physician, athletic trainers administer immediate emergency and follow-up care. They develop athletic injury prevention and treatment programs using their knowledge of biomechanics, anatomy and pathology. They also provide a vital link between the injured athlete, the physician, the coach and the athlete's family to determine the best time for return to practice and competition.
